I created html and javascript webpages on my PC many years ago. Firefox is my default browser, however, when I click on a html link on my PC only Internet Explorer opens. How do I get Firefox to open instead of Internet Explorer.

I tried...
  • <A HREF="firefox: https://www.countries-ofthe-world.com/TLD-list.html" target=_blank><font size="2" face="Verdana">Internet Country Abbreviations</font></A> But it doesn't work. Any ideas?

    I set winRegisterApplicationRestart to false. Firefox doesn't appear in the task manager startup programs list. There is no link to firefox in the startup folder. Nevertheless, firefox runs itself when I log on. How can I make it stop?

    I use my bookmarks to keep track of fanfiction I want to read on archiveofourown.org. The site features a 'history' section itself. Recently I noticed that stories I've bookmarked say that I've visited them way more than I have. The 'How many times you've visited this page' ranges between 30 and 500 times for each story, when I've only actually clicked on them once myself as I bookmarked them. Is firefox constantly opening/pinging my bookmarks and is that what is being reflected on archiveofourown.org?

    Thanks!

    How can I launch Firefox in full screen mode? I created an executable file for simultaneously launching two browser tabs at once. He works. But I need the browser itself to open in full screen mode. In this form, as if the "deploy" button was pressed. Please tell me what you need to add to the lines of the executable file. Or maybe there is another way. Here is the data of the executable file: start "" "D: \\ Browser \ firefox.exe" https://www.google.com/ https://yandex.by/

    i have a few websites that i go to, one is for an Arma 3 server i admin on, we use it to send messages in-game.

    in the message box when ever i click on it is a list of items i have typed in the past, or if i start typing it will narrow down the results.

    i want to know how do i save all of this information, i have a lot of things i have typed over the years and i would like to save it, so i can give it to new moderators as suggestions of what to say.

    can anyone help me?

    When I upgraded to Windows 10, my default browser was reset. I've followed the simple Firefox instructions to reset my default browser to Firefox, but have been unsuccessful. That is because Firefox does not appear on the list of browser options that the Firefox instructions show will appear when I click on Microsoft Edge. Internet Explorer is there, and one other besides MS Edge, but no Firefox. How can I set Firefox as my default browser? This is getting aggravating. Thanks!
